March Break with the grandies- episode 2


As usual, Izzy was first up. We watched a few morning cartoons. Grampa made an offer we couldn't refuse: pancakes from Penny's for the girls, and a kitchen sink for me! It is really busy in the mornings.

I asked them to get dressed before breakfast. I said that it would be respectful to grampa, who was in town fetching brekkie, to be ready and dressed when he arrived back home.
Isabelle headed downstairs. I called to Izzy, "Let's get dressed, sister!"
"I'm not your sister!"
"It's just an expression!"
"I know!"

We rebuilt the tents. Pit stop. Then... da, da, da, dunnnnn.
Outside to make the Death Star. That fell through. Instead, a snow clown and a devil/angel.
It was hard work!

Basement play: re-re-rebuilding the tent/beds.

Light lunch

Story rewrite: we're working on a story book about Darth Vader. Josee took this photo in the brief period we had some sun. We are creating it online with their new Star Wars Lego. Two more days to go! We've had a bit of snow over the last few days.

 After some hard work on our story, we took a break: playing school in the basement. Ironic.

Then it was movie time: Star Wars V!


Chicken thighs and veggies. Then, teeth and jammies.
Jos asked for the camera in order to take photos of the deer outside the basement window.

Bedtime story! 

They haven't asked for Gramma stories all week, I was tickled when they asked for one. I did a version of Nebuchadnezzar, flying them to visit Gramma and Grampa after their big trip, planned for the summer.

At bedtime, they settled in. Then, Daisy noticed we had a friend out front. I brought Josee up to see it. Later, there were 4 of them.

Izzy has a cough. We put on the humidifier under her bed tent.

That's a pretty full day. We just had them for one day and not even that. We played some games in the morning before Danica went off to be with a friend. And JJ wrote a long story.

I see you have some snow. We don't have any right now but may get more

March Break usually ends with somebody getting sick if my memory serves.

I suppose your teaching background helps a lot in successfully handling the visits of your grandkids. Even in winter weather, there are activities that can offer the girls fun and interest, and make their stay a lovely experience to both sides.

It's hard to imagine you with all that snow as I sit in sunny Arizona. Sorry, didn't mean to brag. We will be here for only five days then it will be back north. For saying this it will probably be cold and rainy when we get back. Shouldn't taunt the weather gods. - Margy

That looks like so much fun, but I can also appreciate you are falling into your bed exhausted at the end of the day! Keeping kids entertained is more than a full-time job!
